(upbeat music) (magic sparkles) (all exhale) (alarm ringing) (Lilly snores) Whoa! (gasps) Oh no! I slept in again! (laid-back music) (Mom knocks) Lilly! (gasps) Carpool is coming in five! Five minutes? Yikes! (music sparkles) Ah, yes. Mom's fancy hairdryer to save the day. (hairdryer blows) (water splashes) (Lilly gasps) (Lilly grunts) (Mom knocks) Lilly! Is everything okay in there? Uh, yep, perfection! Come on, work, work, work! Carpool's here! I'm, uh, just finishing up! You saw nothing. Ready! (door shuts) Hey, Mom! Lilly, is that you? Guess what! I totally aced my pop quiz in math because I had a sixth sense it was gonna be popped! (gasps) Mom's broken hairdryer! I can't let her find it. Yeah, I downed an entire water bottle on the way home so I have to go, go, go! Okay, maybe it just needed to cool off and is totally fine now. (machine whirs and dies) Or maybe it's totally dead. (groans) I'm gonna be in so much trouble! Who would do this to you, my little dry baby? She calls it dry baby? I loved you like a daughter, more than a daughter, since mine broke the thing I love most in this world! Mom, no, please! Did you hear something, dry baby? Yeah, me neither. I'm only 10! I'm too young to be disowned. Come on, please work! (groans) No! (magic sparkles) (laughs) Lilly-corn! Whoa, shut the oven door. What is that? Uh, it's a hairdryer? My phone always stays in the real world, but a broken hairdryer tags along? (blows raspberry) Who makes up these rules? What kind of magical human contraption is a hairdryer? It dries hair? You know, hair? (crickets chirp) Or like Poppy's fur or my mane or-- Or my frosting! Maybe, but it's broken and I can't go back to my world and tell my mom I broke it or she'll be mad or sad or the sad kind of mad where you yell and cry at the same time and then you go wild, seeking revenge on the person that broke it even if it's your one and only daughter that-- Oh no. Lilly-corn's spiraling. It's okay, Lilly-corn! Everybody makes mistakes! And the person who would be mad at you is way far away from here, so no stress. You're right. I can use my time here to get my mind off all that breaking-my-mom's-favorite-thing nonsense. You know, it's like that old saying. When in doubt, totally avoid thinking about it all together. That's a saying in your world? Mm, well, it should be. Bye-bye, dry baby, and hello all the distractions Unicorn Island has to offer. Ooh, ooh, I know! Let's ride the rollercoaster! Then I'll be too busy screaming to be haunted by the memory of that thing. I do love riding upside down. It clears my head and my ears. I'd join, but I made plans to take a midday beach break with Pep! (laughs) Can you not say break or broke or hair or dryer or hair...
